The Hawaiian Language Immersion Program is not a program that teaches the Hawaiian language only. It is an academic program, delivered through the Hawaiian language, based upon Hawaiian knowledge and cultural practices, attentive to community, family and student goals. Hawai'i Content and Performance Standards (HCPS), Honua Mauli Ola guidelines and the soon to be developed K-12 Hawaiian Literacy Framework and Performance Standards for Hawaiian Cultural and Language Proficiency, are documents that inform HLIP and may help to guide the teaching and learning that takes place in each of its classrooms.
General Criteria for Curriculum and Assessment
The Hawaiian Language Immersion Program requires the use of general criteria in guiding the development of program curricula. The variations in school calendars and circumstances at individual HLIP sites warrant that a more specific curriculum be generated for HLIP by school level staff. The following criteria provide general guidelines for all Kaiapuni schools.
